“A cake must always go on a cake stand.” —Mary Alam
Wedding cakes are an amazing decor piece you can use to incorporate your theme in a bold way. Not every style of cake fits with every theme, however, and you need to make sure you are serving a cake that not only fits with the rest of your wedding, but matches your and your partner’s personalities. We have made a list of the current wedding cake trends for you to have and reference to see which style is the best fit for your wedding.
Naked cakes have been a big trend for many years. This unfinished-look cake is perfect for a rustic barn wedding. A three-tiered cake layered with cream cheese and garnished with fresh flowers will complete the romantic look on your big day. Recently people have begun using colored frosting in between the layers of cake to add a creative spin on a popular cake style. For a fun twist you can also have the cake layers themselves be colored to make your cake match your style.
Yes, you’re reading this right… watercolor on cakes! Give it extra color and have your flowers drawn on your cake or be more creative and have your favorite childhood drawings drawn on your wedding cake, just like Angelina Jolie did with her kids drawings printed on her dress. This is an amazing alternative to putting real flowers on your cake and having flowers be a part of the cake. Watercolor cakes are perfect for garden weddings or any celebration with colorful flowers and they are a wonderful option if you are more artsy and you want a cake that can express that.
Give it an angelic feeling by going all white. This trend has been around for many years and will never go out of style. This style is a classic for a reason, it draws the eye without being too bold and it will match almost any wedding style. Want to have your wedding cake, simple yet classy and elegant? White-on-white cake would be your best choice.
Geometric cakes are a wonderful option for couples looking for something a bit more bold. These cakes stand on their own as art and are sure to stand out to all of your guests as a truly unique cake experience. Geometric-inspired cakes are perfect for a contemporary, modern art and industrial themed weddings. This cake is all about glam and a fabulously modern feeling.
Ombre is a trend across many industries such as fashion, makeup, and interior design so it makes sense why it is so prevalent in weddings as well. This is a great look if you like the look of a traditional cake but you are looking to incorporate a bit of color onto your cake. Create a layered cake with a swirl of your own favorite color, finish it up with some texture and ruffles and finally add some fresh flowers to complete the look.
